The new Ford Kuga is the American car maker's first compact SUV to be sold globally. Due on sale in the UK early in 2013, the Kuga will offer more interior space than its predecessor and lower running costs. It will also offer a larger boot and a hands-free tailgate that can be operated by waving your foot under the rear of the car. Expect the the new Kuga to come with four-wheel drive as standard and to be priced from around £21,000.

The Kuga offers a choice of two engines, front or four-wheel drive and two trim levels. It's the 2.0 TDCi diesel that makes the most sense in the Kuga, with respectable performance on the road and at the fuel pumps. Underlining the limited appeal of the 2.5-litre turbo petrol engine is that it's only available in range-topping Titanium trim with 4x4-only - the diesel is offered in Zetec or Titanium trims with front or four-wheel drive. The Kuga received a very subtle facelift in 2010 with an updated grille and bumpers.
